Driveway & Patio Cleaning and Sealing Medway including Chatham, Gillngham, Rochester, Strood and surrounding areas
In addition to cleaning your drive or patio, if required we can also seal them to provide a protective barrier and enhance colour and appearance. Paving sealer can do various things such as:
- Inhibit weed growth
- Protect against oil stains
- Protect against food and drink stains such as BBQ fats,red wine and orange juice
- Prevent UV fading of surface
- Enhance colour of natural stone
- Finishes include clear (invisible),matt (damp look) and gloss (wet look)
The choice of whether or not to apply a sealer is a decision for the customer alone and not something we try and push in any way whatsover,except in the case of block paving stabilisation (please see below) as it is necessary to maintain the paving strength. In this case it would be negligent not to do so.
In view of the additional cost implications of using sealants we would always recommend customers check what product is being used and ask to see it sealed and unopened before being applied to your drive,patio or paving. This is a perfectly reasonable request as you’re entitled to see and be sure what you are paying for. Any professional contractor would completely understand and be happy to oblige.
We also apply a highly effective biocidal wash which gives ongoing protection for 12 months against regrowth of lichens,algae,moss,mould and mildew. The product we use is the ONLY one of its kind that has full government approval from the UK Health and Safety Executive. If your only interest in sealers is to prevent the green and black staining caused by algae or to stop moss growth, then biocide is not only more effective it is also long lasting and much cheaper.
Lichens are the off-white and black circular spots often found in paths,roofs,drives,patios etc. These organisms actually take root and penetrate the surface which makes them extremely difficult to remove. Occasionally the only way to do so is treatment with a specialist sodium hypochlorite outdoor cleaning chemical which is applied to the surface and left 24-48 hours prior to the patio or driveway cleaning.

How much does driveway cleaning cost ?

It is essential to re-fill the joints after cleaning block paving because the sand is an integral part of the construction. It creates friction between the blocks and spreads the weight of vehicles parked on it or driving over it. Without this friction the weight is concentrated on to individual blocks which they are not strong enough to withstand. This either breaks the blocks or loosens them and in turn adjoining blocks also work loose and this knock on effect continues across the paving. If not corrected it can lead to a new driveway having to be laid at great expense.
After re-sanding the sand must then be sealed,or stabilised (hardened) in some way,in order to stop it being washed away the next time it rains. This means using a specialist stabilising sand which are expensive or paving sealer. The advantage of a sealer is the extra protection provided across the whole surface as it acts as as a protective barrier against staining and weeds.
